Imagine waking up to the smell of fresh croissants each morning. The Lanna Hill House was a perfect setting for our family of four (two active boys age 11 ands 13). On, the cook, was amazing! Each meal (and we ate most of them at the house) was incredibly delicious and tasted so fresh and flavorful. My usually picky younger son ate with relish! Saiboa, the housekeeper, was also so kind and helpful. Oppy, the manager, was able to help us with all the different ins and outs of seeing the sights and going on our adventures. You couldn't ask for a better set-up and group of people to make you feel pampered. We spent about a week at the house and took full advantage of all there was to do in Chiang Mai, including the Night market, temples, mountain biking, SUP, zipline, elephant park, and hiking to waterfalls. The location of the house is particularly close to the best zipline park (Flight of the Gibbon) and waterfall hikes. Although we were a bit father from the other stuff, we really didn't mind, since we could always just relax in the really fun and well-kept gardens and pool. Not only would I go back and stay as often as possible, I would live there if I could. Thank you to the lovely people who hosted us! We miss you!
My family and I stayed at LHH just last July for a week--our second stay since 2011. Very happy to share that the House and facilities, including the pool, remain as stunning and well-maintained as our first visit seven years ago! Brilliant expansion of the backyard garden and the hospitality, daily pampering, and support given by the staff, led by Oppy Putnam, is simply superb. We felt so at home, relaxed, and very much cared for during our stay. LHH is a wonderful property especially for families wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the ever-growing and busier but still-charming city of Chiang Mai, yet remain within driving distance of its wonderful attractions, shopping areas, and restaurants. Shout out and thanks to the owner, manager, and staff for giving my family a fantastic vacation!
We visited the wonderful Lanna Hill House for a week. Transportation was arranged by the well organized manager Oppy who speaks fluent English.
After winding past green forests and a stunning lake, we arrived at the property. Upon entering the grounds, we were met by 2 lovely dogs, which really adds to the experience here just having them around to play with when taking a wander in the gardens is great.
The house itself really takes your breath away as you walk in, an exquisite design in the local Thai lanna style, and larger than expected. The dark solid wood everywhere is just a pleasure to have around you. Due to the high ceilings and solid walls the temperature actually stayed surprisingly cool inside and we didn’t even need to activate the air conditioner.
Overall the huge house is a breathe of fresh air, my favourite part is sitting on the large balcony and looking over the nearby forests and lake. The whole experience of staying here was nothing but calming.
Also recommend you take a stroll in the evenings around the lakeside nearby, there are many little paths through the forest and lots of beautiful nature around in every direction.
The food provided both mornings and evenings was of an excellent standard.
We cannot recommend Lanna Hill House more and were taken care of very well by Oppy and her staff from start to end. We will certainly be back again.
We've just visited this lovely colonial style villa with another friend couple for a chil out holiday. Rooms are confi, pool is nice, staff Is extemely welcoming. They will make you feel like home without disturbing you even a little bit. The chef at the villa is also brilliant. She cooked for us a variery of excellent Thai food the whole week. Taste better than any Thai restaurant we've tried. The drive to city Is about 45 mins. So planning your day trips to the old town in advance Is advisable. Absolutely recommand if you are looking somewhere to have a relaxing holiday and some great thai food.
tks lanna hill team nice hosting, really made our trip feel like home, all the staff very nice and helpful, the breakfast was outstadning, the house very unique design and our whole family really enjoy our 4 days stay there, 2 x lovely dogs, nice to take them out for a walk in the track, it is abit far to city but we hired private driver for couple days so not a big issue, if house can supply fishing line would be better and wish the pool can be a bit more cleaner would be nicer.
Beautiful colonial style house. Peaceful location and pleasant grounds. Dogs are super friendly and clean. They were always keen to lead us when we walked to the near by lake. We loved hanging around and relaxing in the spacious house or on one of the many balconies. Especially at the pool and sunbathing terrace.
The kitchen staff were great and charming. Not very proficient in English but made up for it in enthusiasm. We envied the cook staff for having such lovely view everyday from the kitchen where they prepared wonderful breakfast and dished up some really good food when we dined in. Better than going out! Oppy, the manager has very good English. She was fun and very helpful with local knowledge and things to do.
Comfy bedrooms although bathrooms could do with an upgrade.
All in all a unique and relaxing experience. Would recommend it to any family, friends reunion or whoever is looking for a peaceful, private countryside escape.
Our family of 6 stayed at Lanna Hill House for two weeks in July and we all wish we had stayed longer.
Many things stood out at the property, however, the staff were exceptional and really made the place a great destination. Oppy was excellent, very professional, organised and easy to talk to. Any queries or requests were handled efficiently and she surpassed expectations every time. Thankyou Oppy! You made our holiday memorable! Thankyou too your staff who were always cheerful and helpful. Outstanding.
The villa itself is beautiful, colonial style with very tasteful décor. The grounds were very well maintained and private. Our children 9 and 10 loved the pool and used it extensively, Lanna Hill house is a beautiful place to unwind.
The breakfasts were perfect, the cooks did a great job every day. We ate at the villa every second day and enjoyed every meal. The meals were of a good size and good quality, and were different every day.
We went into Chiang Mai town every second day with Alex, Oppy's husband. Hopefully you are lucky enough to get Alex as your driver. Alex is fantastic, he has a great sense of humor and he really made our day for us plenty of times during our stay. He took good care of us and his knowledge of the city, and the country, is really very good. Sometimes it was more fun being with Alex than the places he was taking us too, which is something I have not experienced before on holiday. Thanks Alex, from all of us, we really appreciated the time we spent with you.
If you are looking for a relaxed family getaway Lanna Hill house is fantastic, and for us, ticked all of the boxes. Chiang Mai is a great city, the roads to the city are very well built and safe. Great shopping, great food and good times.
Thanks again Oppy and Alex.
